A God box is a useful for tool symbolizing handing something over to ones Higher Power. You put your concerns of life such as people you care for, problems such as finding a job, etc and you "Let Go and Let God."

People here decorate their boxes & some are pretty ornate!

I have a "God bag". It's a beautiful green velvet brocade. In it I put slips of paper, where I write things that keep banging around in my head. They are things I can't seem to let go of or that I'm obsessing over.

Even though it's mostly symbolic, it works for me.
Once a year or so I take out the slips & I'm always amazed how my concerns have been resolved.

We are a creative bunch! :mrgreen:
